that was sent to a united states senator. that also is the subject of the investigation by the fbi. and for more information about these matters, i refer you to the fbi. the president i'm sure you'll ask this, the president of course has been briefed on these letters. he was briefed last night and against this morning. secondly, there is obviously a lot of interest in the explosions in boston, and i wanted to make clear, as you heard from the president yesterday, that our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and to their families who were injured. those who were injured as well as killed in this heinous and cowardly act. the full weight of the federal government is behind this investigation, which is being led by the fbi, and as the president said, we will find out who did this, we will find out why, and we will bring those responsible to justice. that said, it is very important that we allow this investigation to run its full course and to ensure that we retain the integrity of that investigation. therefore, on matters related to the investigation, i would direct you to the fbi. as you know
, and it has watched connecticut. now the world is watching the united states senate. it is watching the senate to see whether mockers he works. democracy works. to reflectacy work the majority of the united states of america, the majority of our people, who say, we need to do something about the guns? that is what the families said to me that day and in days since and what people in connecticut and across the country have said to their senators. we must do something about gun violence. i remember talking to one of the families that evening and saying, you know, when you are ready, we ought to talk about what we can do to stop gun violence in measures in the united states congress. she said to me, i am ready now. the united states senate must be ready now to act. it must keep faith with those families and victims as the , with benjamin andrew wheeler, age six, his father, david, here today, and andrew -- benjamin is here in spirit when we decide whether we will move forward towards progress. senator blumenthal of connecticut on the floor yesterday. dill tweets in -- let's hear what chris has to
sales vote. right now, a clear majority of the united states senate supports the toomey amendment. 62 senators on record for it. 40 on record against it. that should be great news for people who want background checks, right? after newtown, it's got clear majority support to expand background checks. except the republicans are filibustering it so majority won't matter. the 40 senators who are voting no are not committed to voting against the background check. they are voting against there allowing to be a vote on the background check on the amendment. they are voting to filibuster. a majority is voting in favor, so they are going to try to block the up or down vote. jeff flake waited until the coverage of the bombings last night to announce, quietly, silently, in fact, on his facebook page that he will vote against background checks. eight in ten of his constituents in arizona support background checks. he said last night or rather wrote to facebook last night that he's going to vote no. he's voting to filibuster, quietly. that was last night around 9:00 p.m. hey, arizona senator, jef
of his party in the united states senate, many of whom just jumped all over him yesterday? >> i think he likes that. i don't think he's -- he is like, look. he got a very favorable "the washington post" editorial and he'll love that. "morning joe." very favorable commentary right here. i guarantee you if he is up watching this right now, got a good david brooks column. he kind of excited this morning. people said this is kind of important to him. the fact all of these guys i'm trying to do something. in his mind, the white house is not totally out of bounds here. they say if we do this it will throw the republicans off and we have put something out there and this is something we would have agreed to any way in the larger context. understand, this president wants a grand bargain. he is going to give away the store in august of 2011. absolutely going to give away the store. he wants that grand bargain. and they view this as the best negotiating strategy and a lot of people disagree with him. they really want this. he genuinely want this. >> going on the lot and offering 26,000 he has the o
is all of a sudden getting something like this sent to the united states senate, you have to start wondering is something being triggered here? is something going on? it may turn out not to be so but it's worth investigating it from that point of view. >>brian: for that point of view is a guy that's written other senators before. >>steve: peter doocy is outside washington, d.c. >> the building behind me is where the field test was done on a piece of mail sent to republican senator roger wicker that came back positive for ric i n poison. we're told the letter was postmarked memphis, tennessee, had no return address but was otherwise not outwardly suspicious. and the f.b.i. says right now more advanced testing is being done at an acredited facility to confirm the letter did contain ric i n. the cdc says it would take a deliberate act to make ricin and poison people. it has no antidote and some senators are on edge. >> it goes to a lot of staff. that's a big concern obviously for all of us. we're very anxious to get more details. >> senators on capitol hill were briefed about this let
holding those jobs simply to sit there and be called a united states senator? >> but, mike barnicle, here is the rub. as shakespeare would say, here is the rub. if they vote against common sense criminal background checks they will not be there for 18 years. the history is not on wayne lapierre's side. the history is on the 94% side. the 90% side, the 87% side. you pick the poll. not only are they doing the wrong thing, they are doing the wrong thing politically if they don't show courage today and support the background check to keep the guns out of the hands of rapists and terrorists and violent criminal offenders. >> i have a question we might want to ask. i don't know if they dropped the united states in front of their title senator voting against background checks. the question is this. less than 48 hours ago, four blocks from where i sit right now, two devices were exploded. it's terrorism. the intent of terrorism is to make people fearful, to make americans fearful, to gather, to assembly, to go to ballgames and to stay home and coward in their homes. how is it, senator, that ameri
at an assault weapons ban is doomed in the united states senate. now we have this laborious process of senate debate you going to be amendments probably going to weaken it even further. you have the nra waiting for that deterioration to take place. you have politicians that quake at the sight of an nra lobbyist faced with a dilemma. are they influenced by the very human tragedy they are being faced with or will the instincts to quake at the feet of the nra going to take over in the final result? >> eelahe, i would like to look at poll numbers. a new poll shows 65% of women favor stronger gun laws. you what about the gender gap issue. what accounts for that? is it a matter of difference in who ounce guns or a different temperament between the sexes? >> the gender gap on gun laws has been a long-standing one. men are three times more likely to own guns than women and your opinions on gun control and gun legislation are influenced or determined by whether there's a gun in your home. you are seeing the newtown shooting, of course that affected all americans, but mothers, they feel that that speci
states senator, but the idea that i can't get the information, you know, that i need to see the studies that you are doing. and again, i've got trust in the agency but with oversight of the agency. i just don't understand that. >> senator, the information that we have not been able to gather and share is information that is confidential. it relates to medical records and information that can trace back to specific people. and we are required to protect that as a scientist. having said that, if there's anything that we can do to build a more trust these him and on him and him and him and the redacted as far as coming in, the people in that sort of thing. again, you don't have a bunch of information that you shouldn't have dumped out that you know what you shouldn't have dumped out with peoples names and all this kind of stuff. again, we talk about transparency in business. i don't know that there's, in any other area of research, those things are taken care of word you redact, you do this and that, names, things like that. but the basic science, there's just no excuse. >> i am more than
in the united states are enjoying a policy senator marco rubio described today as defacto amnesty and said if illegal immigrants want to stay under the bipartisan senate group of eight plan, they will need to pay fines and get jobs. this is not amnesty. amnesty is the forgiveness of something, amnesty is anything that says do it illegally, it will be cheap he eer and easier if you're illegally in the united states you're not pro hibited from getting a green card, you have to go back and wait for it. we're create ago alternative to that. >> and another member of the gaining of eight says it will be next week. every disagreement between the eight of us is resolved and i expect the eight of us will introduce the bill on tuesday. >> outside the gang of eight they think the group is on the wrong track. >> and we're going to look at how the flow of workers are going to double the workers, in addition to those legalized, 11 million. >> and the criticism of the immigration legislation senator durbin says stopping 90% of illegal border crossing is a goal and a trigger for a part of the law. >> ever
states. republican senator marco rubio of florida, a member of the group nicknamed the gang of eight, he hit the sunday talk shows, all seven of them, to preview the plan, which includes three main policy goals. >> first of all, universal e-verify system which means you won't be able to find a job in the united states if you can't pass that check. secondly, an entry/exit system. you know 40% of our illegal immigration are people that enter legally and then they overstay their visas and we don't really know who they are because for the most part we only track when people come in. we don't track in and when they leave. and third, is real border security. including fences. >> so rubio insists the plan does not amount to amnesty and says millions of undocumented immigrants now in the u.s. would not be able to become citizens for more than a decade. >>> former first couple, now grandparents for the very first time. jenna bush hager daughter of former president george w. bush and his wife laura gave birth to a baby girl saturday in new york city. she is named margaret laura after her grandmoth
. these concerns continue in the united states senate today. about emails thing that was raised again by senator boozman. i explain my idea of having a secondary email was started by christie todd whitman and is continued by democrats and the balkans following. one republican had as a moniker, tofu@epa.com. in order to figure out what they need to answer, they have done that. i would like to ask you for the record, i understand the epa inspector general is looking into the agency's emailed management practices. are you aware of this ever and could you describe us what you know as of this date how that is going? >> inspector general is doing an audit, which we are participating in. i certainly feel and i believe the agency does as well that it is a great opportunity for us to have their independent view of what we can do well and approval on. the acting administrator is working closely with them and we are going to be taking their recommendations to heart and doing everything we can improve the system at epa, as we always would. >> ok. i will yield my time to senator vitters. i have to ask you --

-hour conversation between the senate and the president of the united states about the most substantial issues that we face in debate on the floor and got a better understanding from where everybody is coming from and a better understanding of where we need to get to. >> brian: when you made up the roster, why was it important that marco rubio be on it? >> well, i love all my senate colleagues. i picked the 11 other people other than myself that i thought represented the south, the north, the midwest and the west, both in the political spectrum, new england, moderates, right of center. i tried to get a good coalition that represented what the senate republicans stood for. >> brian: marco rubio was able to come. in terms of an engagement, was there anyone who engaged more with the president when it came to economic issue, guns or immigration? >> no, in fact, immigration came up a little, same thing in terms of guns. most of the discussion was about fiscal policy, about the tax policy, about revenues, about entitlements. that was the gist of the meeting and the heart of the meeting. >> brian: wh
